RCGP chair: 'I advise patients to take photos of their hospital notes'


Over 20 years ago, I had to give the patient a printed, typed, discharge letter before they left the ward, with all medications listed. Why does it now take weeks, and the medication list (and often diagnosis, if anyone bothered to add it) is mising or incorrect. This is really neither progress, nor safe practice or effective handover. What is GMC doing about it?
